Srinagar-Jammu National Highway: Jammu And Kashmir Police Helpline For Information On Amarnath Yatra Pilgrims

Amarnath Yatra 2017 went underway on June 28 and has been in the news ever since. One of India’s most revered pilgrimages, the Amarnath Yatra sees a huge number of devotees visiting the Amarnath cave in Jammu and Kashmir every year to pay their respects to the linga-shaped snow formation. Every year, several Hindu devotees embark upon this journey to pay their respects at one of the most popular shrines of India. The Yatra takes pilgrims through a challenging but picturesque route to the Amarnath temple.

This year, over 2.30 lakh pilgrims have registered for the 40-day long Amarnath Yatra. The pilgrimage culminates on August 7, 2017.

On Sunday, a bus carrying around 46 Amarnath Yatra pilgrims fell off the road into the Nashrana Nallah on the Jammu-Srinagar highway killing 16 pilgrims. Close to 35 other pilgrims were reportedly injured. The bus was heading towards Srinagar when it fell into a gorge around 1.45 pm. Rescue operations by the Indian Army began immediately and several injured passengers were airlifted to be taken for treatment. A few days ago, a terrorist attack claimed 7 lives in Kashmir Valley’s Anantnag which falls enroute the Amarnath shrine. Taking these recent events into consideration, it is extremely important to make a note of the Jammu and Kashmir helpline that pilgrims or their relatives can use for relevant information.


For any queries and information regarding the injured pilgrims, police have established a helpline and asked people to contact SDPO Zadibal on 9419000200, SHO Soura on 9596770587, SHO Karan Nagar on 9596770527 or Police Control Room Kashmir on 0194-2506504-07.

Jammu helpline numbers for any information regarding injured people are GMC Bakshi Nagar Jammu 0191-2532000, 2560401, GMC Jammu 2585444, D.C. Jammu 2571912, SHO Bakshi Nagar 9419151378, SDPO 9622222449.
